The International Women’s Day episode with Sherrie Rohde and Tanya Soroka. Having more diversity in the workplace has been proven to improve performance. The group talk about the experiences of women as a minority and Tanya shares the differences she’s seen between working in US compared to Ukraine.

Would Magento Imagine happen without women? Yes, but in someone’s backyard (If Phil & Kalen were organizing it). The group also talk about how Magento also announced their partnership with Women Who Code, the Increasing Diversity in Tech panel taking place at Imagine and their new CMO, Andrea Ward.

Congratulations Tanya! 👶

“Do you value me because of what I know or do you value me because I increase your diversity count?… I want to have a job because I’m good at what I do.” – Sherrie Rohde. We all have implicit biases, what can we do to recognize and change that? We don’t intend to be biased but it’s a natural thing.

How diverse is the community and Magento? If you walk into a room and you’re the only girl it can feel a little strange. We need more female role models to help women feel like they belong at events and within the community.

“There are more millennials in China on Alibaba shopping everyday than there are Americans, period. “ – Phil Winkle. We need to think globally. Diversity and thought diversity are extremely important for getting different perspectives from across the world, after all most of the world is not in the United States.

Lets continue the conversation on diversity.

  • TJ Gamble – Owner, Jamersan – @og_tjg

Show Notes

Who doesn’t love the southern accent?

Kalen is joined by TJ Gamble in this Phil-less episode. TJ is the top dog at Jamersan, a B2B eCommerce focused and leading Magento development agency based in Alabama. The guys talk Magento Live, why Jamersan focus on B2B, Orocommerce and Magentos focus on mid-market. Rackspace layoffs begin as it restructures as a private company and it appears to start to cut ties with Magento, it’s a tough time to be in the hosting business.

In the second half of this podcast TJ & Kalen discuss industry events and the benefits of attending. If you aren’t going to events, you are doing yourself a great disservice – if you’re not sure on going to Imagine, just go and get your ticket.

Remote teams have benefits and struggles, TJ talks about their distributed team and trying to figure out how to continuously get better at what they do at Jamersan. Hiring the right staff is not easy, so TJ and Kalen discuss what you can do to find the best people and what to look for both before, during and after the recruitment process.

“Strive to be the tortoise, not the hare.”

There is a strong Sherrie Cher theme to this episode. IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME… I would not offer to do these show notes for free.

The guys first talk about the popularity of the Magento Community Forums, the great work Sherrie Rohde is doing and the sheer size of the Magento Community. It’s pretty awesome.

Commerce Hero is going strong and is picking up momentum. Kalen talks the ups, the downs and learning from experiences.

Phil surprises Kalen with the announcement of a new podcast he has started called Merchant to Merchant where they record roundtables of Merchants to discuss issues that are specific to their industries and regions.

The eCommerce Hall of Shame is back! Phil shames a vendor that, no matter how much he tries, will not let him unsubscribe from emails.  Also, their logo is really dumb but they did make Phil’s feet hot.

Are retargeting ads annoying? Kalen contemplates turning them off for Commerce Hero. Kalen then shares a few of the Commerce Hero job listings and the guys discuss the cost of living differences between locations.

MAGE TALK LIVE IS HAPPENING AT MAGENTO IMAGINE.

Kalen talks about a new feature he has added to Commerce Hero after speaking to Andra Lungu of Bitbull. Andra is one of the organizers of Mage Titans Italy and, in an effort to diversify the speaker panel, was looking for a way to find the female professionals on the site. The gender filter did receive a little bit of negative pushback but overall the feedback was good.

Now, go outside.
